Nursing Mother, Working Mother

Gale Pryor
Harvard Common Press

New mothers may view the involved parenting that breast-feeding requires as incompatible with commitment to a career rather than as an effective strategy for blending the two sides of their lives into a new whole. In this sensitive, insightful guide that acknowledges the concerns working mothers face, Pryor maintains that breast-feeding provides a way to bond with the baby, nurture a child's healthy growth, and gain confidence as a parent. Pryor supplements the emotional support she provides with practical tips on getting started and coping with setbacks and also with specific tasks facing working mothers, such as choosing a breast pump, integrating pumping sessions into daily work schedules, and maintaining milk supply.
